Where do you find your pro dates at OTC?
Akpla looks really good, but there is no way he's 6'0 is there? Looks REALLY short. Not that that's a bad thing because he looks like he can stretch the field.

Elvis is my sleeper of the draft.

Dude is an absolute baller. He plants his feet and goes. Watch his sideline instincts. Extremely fast off the snap. Plays much faster than he clocks due to his burst. Probally not 6 foot but hes very good at going up and getting the football.

I expect to draft atleast 2 WR with only two WR currently signed through next year. I would love to send a flyer on this guy if we take one of the bigger guys in the earlier rounds.

He doesn't look short to me. Would say 5-11 at the worst. Either way, I don't care what he measures in at because the kid definitely can definitely get open deep. I don't care how, but I want this kid in our camp.

You're the man OTC. Thank you kindly sir.
I like Dale Moss out of South Dakota State. Played 4 years of B-Ball there and made the conversion to football for the last of his eligability. He's raw but has great hands, can jump out of the stadium and is super athletic. His hardwood skills translate to the football field really well.

We talked about him a bit in the late-round sleepers thread. He's an interesting UDFA guy. Think he played in the Players All Star Classic this year, can't recall, but he's got some skill.
I must have missed him in that thread. Id consider him in the 7th just to lock him up.
My boy Coale just ran an unofficial 4.4 40 time, did not expect that. If that time stands, along with his versatility where do you see him being picked OTC? I think he's definitely worth a look more than ever.

You definitely get credit for predicting that he times faster than he plays, just reread your initial response to me.

Coale's official is 4.5.

A few guys I've mentioned:
Lavon Brazill - 4.48
TJ Graham - 4.41
Kashif Moore is a WR that can be had late in the draft or as UDFA. 4.42 40. 43.5 Vert. 126 in broad. He's only 5'9 but is showing he's explosive.

Been keeping tabs on Kashif. I would like to hear more about what teams think about his lack of production, despite his striking physical abilities. Is it because of QB play? UConn's run-heavy offense? Both? Can't be sure. But you have to like his chances late.

Compact player, 5-9 180 4.42 (official) with 19 reps on the bench and that impressive explosiveness that can be inferred from the Vertical and Broad jump numbers.

Thanks for the info. How are Graham's hands? Wasn't he a track guy?

I'm curious too. I know UConn more focuses on the run and that probably hurts his stats. But having McEntee this year and Frazer ( ) last year throwing to him doesn't help. McEntree might have a cute little trick shot video, but he's not very good when he gets on the field.

With his athletic ability, he'd be worth bringing in as a high-priority UDFA.
